Uniform is compulsory for all students of the school and is designed to be practical and suitable for a working environment. It allows for cultural and religious observations. We hope parents/carers will support us by making sure that their children do not deviate from the uniform shown here, particularly with reference to trousers, trainers, jewellery and hairstyles.
Any items made in denim or leather are NOT ALLOWED. Hoodies/Cardigans are also not allowed and should not be used as a substitute for a coat.
We would also request your support in ensuring that girls do not wear very short skirts or tight trousers. Students infringing school uniform rules, without a note from home will be sanctioned.
Students arriving in School in non-uniform items or with severe haircuts and not in possession of a note from home will be detained at lunchtimes or in extreme cases will be isolated for the day(s).
If your son/daughter plays for a school team then they must have the black football socks.
Please note that hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed in the changing rooms at the start of the PE lesson.
Students will always require kit even if they are ill or injured. In this instance they will also require a note to explain why they are not able to fully participate. We would then only expect them to join in with activities appropriate to their injury or illness.
